Benfica's Matic would cost £38m for Chelsea return

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been told that Nemanja Matic will cost him £38million according to the Daily Star.

The 24-year old Serbian midfielder is being linked with a return to the club he departed for Benfica in January 2011.

That deal consisted of Matic and £21m heading the way of the Portuguese giants with Brazilian ace Luiz finding his way to Stamford Bridge and now Mourinho is reportedly keen on bringing the playmaker back to London.

However, Matic has suggested he would prefer to stay with Benfica making the move, despite Mourinho's best intentions, highly unlikely.
